Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report
National Edition
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
********************************
Uniting Not To Be Defeated:
Low-Wage Workers Rally To Raise Minimum Wage

Workers in low-wage jobs, car washers, taxi drivers, airport workers, daycare
providers, restaurant workers and retail employees joined in solidarity with
organized labor, community organizations, religious leaders and politicians to
demand better pay, benefits and working conditions for ALL workers. They
rallied to call for fair wages on the three-year anniversary of the last increase to the federal minimum wage. The Day of Action in over 30 U.S. cities was in support of legislation in Congress to raise the minimum wage to $9.80 by 2014. The rallies followed on the heel of new data showing that large corporations with more than 100 employees hire the majority of the countryâs low-wage workers (66%) â and that their recovery signals it is time to improve wages for the lowest-paid workers. New data from the Economic Policy Institute also shows the wide-ranging impact a minimum wage raise would have on Americaâs workers and on improving the economic growth..
